Iga Swiatek defeats Ons Jabeur to win the U.S. Open in a display of efficiency.

With her usual efficiency, Swiatek defeated Tunisia's Ons Jabeur, 6-2, 7-6 (7-5),

to win her second Grand Slam championship of the year, her third overall, and her first on a hard court.

Swiatek, who is only 21 years old, amassed one of the best winning runs in the history of women's tennis earlier this year when she won six straight tournaments

 and 37 straight matches, ending it with a victory against Coco Gauff to claim her second French Open championship.

Her victory at Meadows offers hope that the top-level consistency women's tennis has been lacking since Williams won her most recent major championship in 2017 may soon return.

Since Williams won the competition eight years earlier, Swiatek was the first top seed to make it to the U.S. Open final. Since Williams did so in 2013,

 She was also the only woman to advance to both the French Open and U.S. Open finals in the same year.

When new rankings are released on Monday, she will be ranked as the world's top player, followed by Jabeur.
